Tell us about yourself!
That is absolutely brilliant. Didn't even know it was that simple.Would it work better if wires were soldered? and if a metal pin (saftey pin) was used to bridge the coil to the paperclip?
Awesome project, very interesting and well done.I don't think I''ll try play with high voltage stuff. Too scary. Just a safety tip to mention to people... don't experiment with electrical projects on a carpeted floor. You risk burning your house down if something goes wrong ;)
